Some context for those not familiar with Waffle House Culture:  Waffle House is one of the few chains in America that’s open 24/7/365, and where you can get both breakfast and lunch/dinner options at any time (I have had so many Breakfast Cheeseburgers at Waffle Houses). The food is really good, and people eat there at all times of the day or night, but it’s particularly popular as a late-night post-drinking spot because it’s all that’s open and it’s the kind of food that tastes especially good when you’re hammered. Part of Waffle House Protocol is that all the servers and cooks greet every single customer as they come through the door. It sounds lame, but I’ve never been to a Waffle House where that greeting didn’t feel completely heartfelt. My mom is a health nut who could barely find anything on the menu she was willing to eat and yet she describes the Christmas Day lunch we had there one year as one of the nicest meals she’s ever had because everyone was so warm and welcoming. That sense of camaraderie gets turned up to 11, of course, at 2 a.m. when everyone’s shitfaced. The jukeboxes have Waffle-House-themed songs on them (once you have heard “Raisins in my Toast” you will be earwormed forever) and there is an arcane system of hash brown ordering: scattered, smothered, covered, chunked, topped, diced, peppered, and/or capped. The hot sauce bottles say “Casa de Waffle.”  Once, in Oxford (UK), my husband and I walked past a kebab van very late one night and he said “why do I smell Waffle House” The location of most Waffle Houses means there’s some… classism that tends to get tied up with Anti-Waffle House Discourse, which is probably lending itself, in part, to this being such a fraught topic. (I’m looking at a map and apparently I was born and raised right in the middle of the Peak Waffle House Density Zone) It is, in the words of chef Anthony Bourdain, “indeed marvelous— an irony-free zone where everything is beautiful and nothing hurts; where everybody regardless of race, creed, color or degree of inebriation is welcomed.” This was adorable lmao Waffle Houses are also kind of popular places to get shot at but other than that it’s pretty dank

 "Sign on door no guns"
 My husband and I have conceal carry permits. We
 noticed the no weapons at the door. I don't do
 business with companies that deny me my 2nd
 amendment right and put me at risk of a mass
 shooting with no way to defend my self. So we left.

One La Marque, Texas waitress is getting a $16,000 scholarship for giving great customer service. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Waffle House waitress, Evoni Williams was working her regular shift at the restaurant when an older customer asked her to cut his food. “I was just like, ‘Sure! If you need help, that’s what I am here for,’” the 18-year-old waitress told CNN. “My cook was calling my name to pick up food I had on the board, but I continued to cut his ham.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The older customer’s name is Adrien Charpentier, and he had been experiencing weakness in his hands after he left the hospital, where he was treated for pneumonia. While she was cutting his food, Williams caught the attention of another customer sitting at a table who snapped a picture of Williams and posted it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ From there, the photo went viral and La Marque Mayor Bobby Hocking took notice. His gift to her was proclaiming March 8 “Evoni ‘Nini’ Williams Day” in her honor. But that’s not the end, the President of Texas Southern University heard about her good deed and gave her $16,000 in scholarship money. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When Williams begins her college career, she intends to major in business administration and one day plans to open her own salon or restaurant.
